Evee is a Retired Mill Momma, and is ready to learn how to be a dog. No more babies for this lady! She's sweet, but shy and would love another dog in the home to help teach her the ropes. If you're ready to put in the work, we know this beautiful girl will blossom.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Sandra Dee’s adoption donation is $425 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio.  She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza and Bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention, as well as flea prevention.  She has also had a dental cleaning with multiple extractions. Sandra Dee requires a home with a secure, physically fenced yard, a companion dog of similar size/energy and a strong veterinary history. Sandra Dee came into rescue from a seizure by the Richland County Humane Society. She is learning that people can be kind and that good things come from them like treats. She is slowly getting over her fears and will come when she hears the dog treat bag being opened. Sandy did have a number of teeth removed during her dental cleaning and she has recovered and we have kept her on a soft diet, which she loves. A patient and understanding home will be needed for Sandy to continue her progress. She looks to the companion dog for cues on how to react and definitely follows their lead. Sandy does well on housetraining if kept on a schedule. She is still learning to walk on a leash so that is why a fenced yard is required for her own safety at this time. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website like Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet, or another search engine (the OFP website is, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog. Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. Our Adoption Process The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here: Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs. Special Requirements Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets.  The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs. Out of State Adoptions We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.  December 6, 2023, 10:06 pm

Max has been my companion for the past 13 years and experienced countless adventures together. We recently moved to Ohio, and though the move has been great for me, it has not been great for Max as he is away from all our friends and family. Because of work, I am away from home for a majority of the day. This leaves Max all by himself. Though he has always had great health. His hearing has declined, as well as some leg mobility. We would love for his Adoptee to be a family that has a backyard that will allow Max to relax and take in the sun, as well as other pets that can offer Max some companionship. Max is a sweet, independent, good-natured dog, who spends his days, napping, exploring or occupying space where you currently are. His shots up-to-date and I can provide you his medical records.
